Description

在移动电信网内提供和检索与具体移动站关联的基于呼叫转移的数据 Providing and retrieving associated with a particular mobile station within a mobile telecommunications network-based call forwarding data

背景技术 Background technique

发明领域本发明与电信网有关,具体地说,与在公众陆地移动网(PLMN)内基于位置的呼叫转移有关。 Field of the Invention The present invention is related to a telecommunications network and, in particular, the location-based call forwarding within about Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN).

相关技术描述随着移动通信系统的出现和发展,电信用户不再要人身限制在有线线路终端或固定位置利用电信网通信。 Description of Related Art With the advent and development of mobile communication systems, telecommunications users are no longer restricted to personal use of telecommunication network communication in a wired terminal or a fixed line position. 利用所增加的漫游和局际切换能力,移动用户可以在多个公众陆地移动网(PLMN)之间旅行,使用同样的电话号码和同样的移动台发起呼出和接收呼入。 The increased use of roaming and inter-office switching capability, users can move between multiple Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN) travel, using the same phone number and the same mobile originated outgoing and receive incoming calls. 因此,一个移动用户可以利用多个服务提供机构从多个位置获得电信服务,承担对单个预约服务合同收取的各种费用。 Therefore, a mobile user can make use of multiple service providers access to telecommunications services from multiple locations, bear all costs for a single reservation service contracts charged.

此外,为了正确地选择路由和建立呼叫连接,发起呼叫的主叫方并不需要知道所希望的移动用户身在哪里。 In addition, in order to properly route and call connection is established, the caller initiates the call does not need to know where the desired mobile users are in. 访问用户位置寄存器(VLR)与归属用户位置寄存器(HLR)之间的数据信号自动更新和存储使网络能将呼入改送至为漫游移动用户服务的适当的移动业务交换中心(MSC)。 Data signals between the visitor location register (VLR) and Home Location Register (HLR) automatically update and store enable network can change the incoming call to the appropriate mobile services switching center a roaming mobile subscriber and services (MSC). 此外,无论当前为移动台服务的是哪个MSC,与这个服务MSC关联的VLR与移动台的HLR都要进行通信,检索出必要的用户数据,包括用户预约功能数据和计费数据,为移动台提供同样的移动业务服务。 Further, regardless of the current mobile station and services which MSC, the serving MSC associated with the VLR and the HLR of the mobile station should communicate, the user retrieves the necessary data, including user data and billing data reservation function, the mobile station providing the same mobile business services.

然而,对于一个用户来说并不是总希望得到同样的服务。 However, for a user who does not always want to get the same service. 例如,如果一个主叫方不是那么希望与一个特定的移动用户接触,而是希望与一个处在一定地理位置内的移动用户接触,那为漫游移动台提供这种同样的服务就不是所希望的。 For example, if a caller is not so want to reach with a particular mobile user, but to move in with a user contacts within a certain location, that provide this same service to a roaming mobile station is not desirable . 例如,如果移动用户是一个服务提供方(如办公设备维护方)而主叫方希望发起一个业务呼叫,那么只是希望在移动用户处在主叫方不远的地理范围时才发到这个移动用户。 For example, if a mobile user is a service provider (such as office equipment maintenance side) and the calling party wishes to initiate a service call, the caller then just hope that in the near geographical scope only be sent to the mobile subscriber in the mobile user . 在一个维护人员移动到主叫方通常地理区域以外时使呼叫转移给这个维护人员对主叫方并没有用处。 In the maintenance personnel move to a caller may make a geographical area other than when a call is transferred to the maintenance person calling party no use. 此外,这样的服务提供方可能希望只有一个或少数几个它的顾客可用的业务号码。 In addition, such a service provider may wish to have only one or a few of its customer service number available.

一种更为合乎需要的系统可使一个移动电信系统能根据被呼叫用户的位置将呼叫转移到一组预定的移动台中的一个移动台。 A more desirable system can require a mobile telecommunication system to transfer the call to a predetermined set of a mobile station according to the called mobile station user's location.

因此,有必要研究一种机制,使移动电信网能为移动用户提供业务区呼叫转移功能,使移动用户能充分有效地利用这种功能而大大减少无效益地使用这种功能。 Therefore, it is necessary to study a mechanism that enables mobile telecommunications network to provide service area call forwarding to mobile users, mobile users can fully and effectively utilize this feature greatly reduce the unproductive use of such function.

发明概述本发明揭示了一种为移动台提供基于位置的呼叫转移功能的方法和系统。 SUMMARY The present invention discloses a method of providing location-based call forwarding features to a mobile station methods and systems. 利用本发明的方法和系统,在有一个呼叫进入网关移动业务交换中心(GMSC)时,GMSC就与移动台的归属用户位置寄存器(HLR)通信,确定当前为移动台服务的MSC。 Using the method and system of the present invention, in a call enters the gateway mobile services switching center (GMSC) when, in communication with the GMSC to the home location register of the mobile user station (the HLR), to determine the MSC currently serving the mobile station. HLR周期性地供有位置更新信号,其中包括标识当前为移动台服务的业务区的数据。 HLR is periodically supplied with a location update signal including data identifying the current service area for the mobile station and services. 通过分析接收到的数据,HLR就能确定当前为移动台服务的业务区的识别标志。 By analyzing the data received, HLR will be able to determine the current service area identification code for the mobile station and services.

HLR确定和分析的业务区包括一个当前覆盖移动台的公众陆地移动网(PLMN)区。 HLR identify and analyze current service area includes a covered public land mobile network of the mobile station (PLMN) area. 业务区还可以包括一个当前覆盖移动台的MSC覆盖区。 Service area may further include a MSC coverage area currently covering the mobile station. 或者,业务区也可以包括在一个具体服务MSC的覆盖区内的一个位置区。 Alternatively, the service area may also include a location area of ​​a particular serving MSC coverage area. 为了使HLR能正确分析和确定位置区,服务MSC发送的位置更新信号还包括表示当前为移动台服务的业务区的数据。 In order to properly analyze and determine the HLR location area, a location update signal sent by the serving MSC further includes data representation of the service area currently serving the mobile station.

知道了移动台的一般位置,HLR如果发现移动台占线,就根据位置将呼入转到一些预定转移号码之一。 Know the general location of the mobile station, HLR if we find the mobile station is busy, it is the position of the incoming transfer to one of several predetermined number.

最佳实施例图1示出了可以采用本发明的方法和系统的电信系统的方框图。 PREFERRED EMBODIMENT Fig. 1 shows a block diagram of a telecommunication system according to the present invention may be employed in the method and system. 公众陆地移动网(PLMN)10a和10b各包括一个网关移动业务交换中心(GMSC)20,至少一个移动业务交换中心(MSC)30,一个归属用户位置寄存器(HLR)40,一个访问用户位置寄存器(VLR)50,以及与相应MSC 30相关联的基站控制器(BSC)60。 Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN) 10a and 10b each comprise a gateway mobile services switching center (GMSC) 20, at least one mobile services switching center (MSC) 30, a Home Location Register (HLR) 40, a visitor location register ( VLR) 50, and the MSC 30 associated with the respective base station controller (BSC) 60. PLMN 10a和10b均可与移动台70通信,并且与公众电话交换网(PSTN)80链接,以提供与其他电话用户的通信。 70 PLMN 10a and 10b can communicate with the mobile station, and 80 links with the public switched telephone network (PSTN), to provide communication with other phone users. BSC 60通过数字通信链路90与MSC 30链接,通过无线信道100与移动台70通信。 BSC 60 and MSC 30 the link 90 via a digital communication link, a communication radio channel with the mobile station 70 through 100. HLR 40有一个数据库,其中存有有关“归属”用户、他们的业务和位置的信息。 HLR 40 has a database where there related to "home" users, their business information and location. 在此,所谓“归属”定义为用户签约的PLMN服务提供机构。 Here, the so-called "home" is defined as the user has subscribed PLMN service providers. VLR 50也有一个数据库,其中存有有关“访问”用户、他们的业务和位置的信息。 VLR 50 also has a database in which there "access" users about the information their businesses and locations. 在此,所谓“访问”定义为移动台出了它的归属PLMN而由它的归属MSC以外的一个MSC服务的情况。 Here, the term "access" is defined out of its home PLMN and the situation outside its home MSC of a serving MSC for the mobile station.

在移动台60出了它的归属PLMN 10a而进入访问PLMN 10b时,访问MSC 30就与归属PLMN 10a内的HLR 40通信,对访问移动台70的电信业务进行鉴权和认证,从归属HLR 40和检索出有关的用户信息。 When the mobile station 60 of its home PLMN 10a and into the access PLMN 10b, a communication access to MSC 30 and HLR 40 within the home PLMN 10a for the mobile station 70 access to telecommunications services for authentication and authentication, from the home HLR 40 and retrieves information about users. 一旦鉴权通过,移动台60就登记为一个“漫游”用户,可以得到电信业务服务。 Once the authentication is passed, the mobile station 60 to register as a "roaming" users can get telecommunications business services.

一个诸如有线终端110那样的电信终端通过拨出一个与移动台70关联的电话号码,如移动用户综合业务数字网(MSISDN)号码,向移动台70发起呼叫。 Such as a wireline terminal 110 by dialing the telecommunications terminal associated with the mobile station 70 with a telephone number such as a Mobile Subscriber Integrated Services Digital Network (MSISDN) number, a call to mobile station 70. 于是,一开始就有一个呼叫建立信号从PSTN 80传送到为移动台70的归属PLMN 10a服务的GMSC 20。 Thus, there is a beginning of a call setup signal transmitted from the PSTN 80 to the mobile station 70 of the home PLMN 10a and services GMSC 20. 归属GMSC 20响应这个呼叫建立信号,查询归属HLR 40,确定移动台70的确切位置。 The home GMSC 20 in response to the call setup signal, queries the home HLR 40, to determine the exact location of the mobile station 70. 归属GMSC 20是通过将一个请示路由指令的信号经信号链路120发送给归属HLR 40来达到这个目的的。 The home GMSC 20 via a signal link signal routing instructions sent to consult the home 120 HLR 40 to achieve this purpose. 归属HLR 40确定当前为移动台70服务的MSC 30的识别标志,将一个请求漫游号码的信号经信号链路130发送给服务MSC 30。 The home HLR 40 for the mobile station 70 determines that the current serving MSC identification flag 30, a request signal via signal link 130 transmits a roaming number to the serving MSC 30. 服务MSC 30确认移动台70当前是在它的业务区内后,就将漫游号码经信号链路140回发给归属HLR 40。 MSC 30 serving the mobile station 70 is currently confirmed after its service area, the roaming number will be sent back to 140 via signal link the home HLR 40. 归属HLR 40再将接收到的漫游号码转给GMSC 20。 The home HLR 40 and then transferred to the received roaming number to GMSC 20. GMSC 20利用这个新的漫游号码将接收到的呼叫建立信号,诸如一个初始地址消息(IAM),经信号链路160改送给规定的MSC 30。 GMSC 20 using this new roaming number of the received call setup signal, such as an initial address message (IAM), MSC 160 via signal link 30 to change to the predetermined. 然后,服务MSC 30在寻呼信道(PCH)上寻呼移动台70,接收到移动台70的响应后,就在一个业务信道(TCH)上建立与移动台70的语音连接。 The serving MSC pages the mobile station 30 over paging channel 70 (the PCH), the mobile station 70 receives the response, and establish a voice connection to the mobile station 70 in the channel (TCH) of a business.

因此,对于移动电信网来说,为了向一个具体的移动台正确提供移动业务服务,需要周期性地更新一些信息。 Therefore, for a mobile telecommunications network, in order to provide mobile services business to correct a specific mobile station, we need to periodically update some information. 与移动台70关联的HLR40必需用当前为移动台70服务的MSC 30的识别标志加以更新。 HLR40 associated with the mobile station 70 required to be updated to the mobile station 70 serving MSC identification flag 30 with a current. 这信息以后由GMSC 20用来将呼入改送给适当的服务MSC 30。 This information is used later to change the incoming call from the GMSC 20 to the appropriate service MSC 30. 服务MSC30及其关联的VLR 50也需用必要的用户数据加以更新,以便为移动台70提供适当的移动业务服务。 MSC30 and the service associated VLR 50 is also used to be necessary to update the user data to provide appropriate mobile service to the mobile station 70 services. 每当有呼叫来自或需送至移动台70时,服务MSC 30不可能发起与移动台70的HLR 40的通信来交换必需的信息。 Whenever there is a call from or to the required mobile station 70, serving MSC 30 can not initiate communication with the mobile station 70 of the HLR 40 to exchange necessary information. 因此,服务MSC 30和所配合的VLR 50需用专为访问移动台70列出的必要用户数据加以更新,以便适当地为移动台70服务。 Accordingly, the serving MSC 30 and VLR 50 with the required updates to be designed to access the necessary data of the mobile user station 70 is listed, in order to properly service the mobile station 70. 这样的数据包括用户特约功能、计费帐户信息等。 Such data includes user special functions, billing and other account information.

为了移动网能正确对被叫移动台70定位、将呼入改送至适当的MSC 30,归属HLR 40需要保持对移动台70当前位置的跟踪。 In order to correct for the mobile network to the called mobile station 70 is positioned, to change the incoming call to the appropriate MSC 30, the home HLR 40 needs to keep track of the current location of the mobile station 70. 因此,下面将结合图2说明服务MSC 30与移动台70的HLR 40进行传统的位置更新情况。 Thus, as will be described in conjunction with FIG. 2 serving MSC 30 and the HLR 40 of the mobile station 70 updates conventional position. 每当移动台70漫游入由MSC 30服务的位置区之一时,移动台70就要发送一个与移动台70关联的识别号码,例如国际移动用户身份(IMSI)号码,经BSC 60送至服务MSC 30,向服务MSC 30登记。 Whenever the mobile station 70 roams into a location area of ​​one MSC 30 serving the mobile station 70 must send an identification number associated with the mobile station 70, for example, International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) number to the serving MSC via BSC 60 30, to register with the service MSC 30.

为了鉴别移动台70,服务MSC 30利用接收到的IMSI号码向漫游移动台70的HLR 40发送一个位置更新信号(信号170)。 In order to identify the mobile station 70, serving MSC 30 using the received IMSI number to the roaming mobile station 70 to the HLR 40 sends a location update signal (signal 170). 通过发送一个基于信令连接控制点(SCCP)的信号系统No.(SS7)信号,利用接收到的IMSI号码作为SCCP目的地地址就能使连接电信网将服务MSC 30发送的信号送至HLR 40。 By sending a signaling system based signaling connection control point (SCCP) of No. (SS7) signal using the received IMSI number as the SCCP destination address can make a service network connecting the telecommunication signals transmitted by MSC 30 to the HLR 40 . 漫游移动台70的HLR 40于是确认移动台70的身份后也更新它的数据库,记下当前为移动台70服务的MSC。 Roaming mobile station 70 HLR 40 then confirm the identity of the mobile station 70 is also updating its database, note the current 70 services for the mobile station MSC. 这样的信息以后由HLR 40用来修改呼入的路由。 Such information is used by the HLR 40 after modifying inbound routing. HLR 40还检索出与移动台70有关的用户数据发给执行位置更新的服务MSC(信号180)。 HLR 40 further retrieves subscriber data associated with the mobile station 70 perform a location update service distributed MSC (signal 180). 所发送的数据就由服务MSC 30用来为漫游移动台70提供移动业务服务。 Data transmitted to it by the serving MSC 30 to provide mobile services roaming mobile station 70 services. 这样的数据包括呼叫转移功能的转移号码、计费数据、长途载运方数据等。 Such data include call forwarding number forwarding function, billing data, long distance carrier data side.

接收到发来的用户数据后,服务MSC 30就将数据存储在所配合的VLR 50内。 After receiving the data sent by the user, the serving MSC 30 will fit the data stored in the VLR 50. 此后,就向漫游移动台70提供符合接收到的用户数据的移动业务服务。 Thereafter, the service provides mobile service to match the user data received to the roaming mobile station 70. 由于要求服务MSC 30从移动台70专属的HLR 40检索出用户数据,因此无论为移动台70服务的是哪个MSC,使用同样的用户特约功能数据、计费合同和用户规定的其他信息,从而为移动台70提供同样的移动业务服务。 Since the service requested MSC 30 to retrieve user data from HLR 70 exclusive mobile station 40, so whether the mobile station 70 services which MSC, using the same user special function data, other information specified in the contract and billing users, so as to the mobile station 70 provides the same mobile business services.

然而,如前面所述,并不总是希望所受到的服务那样一致。 However, as described above, it is not always desirable as being consistent with the service. 下面结合图2和图3说明传统的系统执行呼叫转移的情况。 Case of the conventional system will be described below performs call transfer. 2 and 3 in conjunction with FIG. 在与归属HLR40执行位置更新后,服务VLR 50用必要的用户数据包括现有技术的呼叫遇忙转移(CFB)的用户特约功能加以更新。 After performing location update with the home HLR 40, VLR 50 with the necessary service user data includes user special function call prior art Busy (CFB) to be updated. 接着,另一个电信终端,诸如有线终端110,拨了移动台110的MSISDN号码,发起一个呼叫连接。 Subsequently, another telecommunications terminal, such as wireline terminal 110, the dialed MSISDN number of the mobile station 110 initiates a call connection. 所产生的呼叫建立消息,诸如IAM信号,首先由与移动台70的归属PLMN 10a配合的服务GMSC 20接收。 Generated call setup message, such as an IAM signal, is first received by the mobile station 70 with the home PLMN 10a with the service GMSC 20. 于是GMSC 20向与所接收的MSISDN号码关联的HLR 40发送一个请求路由指令的信号(信号120)。 Signal (signal 120) GMSC 20 then sends a request to the routing instructions to the HLR associated with the received MSISDN number is 40. HLR 40检索出在上次位置更新期间接收到的服务MSC 30的网络地址,也向服务MSC 30发送一个请求漫游号码的信号(信号130)。 HLR 40 is retrieved during the last location update received network address of the serving MSC 30, also sends a signal requesting a roaming number (signal 130) to the serving MSC 30. 服务MSC 30向HLR 40回发一个漫游号码(信号140),HLR 40再将接收到的漫游号码转给GMSC 20(信号150)。 Serving MSC 30 sends a roaming number to the HLR 40 back (signal 140), HLR 40 and then transferred to the received roaming number to GMSC 20 (signal 150). 利用接收到的漫游号码,呼入就正确地改送至服务MSC 30。 Using the received roaming number, the incoming calls can be correctly changed to a service MSC 30. 接着,服务MSC 30确定移动台70已经处于与另一个终端的语音连接之中后,查明移动台70是否激活了呼叫转移功能之一。 Next, serving MSC 30 determines that the mobile station 70 is already in speech connection with another terminal in identifying whether the mobile station 70 to activate one of the call diverting function. 如果确定移动台70已激活CFB,服务MSC 30就从VLR 50检索出先前存储的转移号码,从而将所接收的呼入转移到所规定的转移号码。 If it is determined the mobile station 70 is activated CFB, the serving MSC 30 retrieves the previously stored forwarding number from the VLR 50, thereby transferring the received incoming call to the specified forwarding number. 如图所示,因此在有线终端110和一个第一电信终端200之间建立一个呼叫连接。 As shown, thus establishing a call connection between the wireline terminal 110 and a first telecommunications terminal 200. 这样的呼叫连接是低效、浪费的,如果第一电信终端200处在呼叫所希望的LATA(LATA-A)以外的话。 Such a call connection is inefficient, wasteful, if other than the first telecommunications terminal 200 is in if the desired call LATA (LATA-A). 如前面所讨论的那样,在所举的是一个业务呼叫请求的例子中,将呼叫转移到一个在需要这种业务服务的地理区域以外位置的终端或移动台是没有多少用处的。 As previously discussed, in the example cited is a service call request, the call to a terminal in a mobile station or a position other than the geographic area where such service is the service of little use. 结果,移动用户必需支付为将呼叫连接改至第一电信终端200需承担的长途费用,而且仍需将信息送至适当的地理区域。 As a result, the mobile user must pay for the long distance call connection to the change amount of the first telecommunications terminal 200 will be limited, but still the appropriate information to the geographic area. 很可能第一电信终端200现在要产生一个回到始发地理区域的呼叫(可能还要承担长途费用),以使这个业务请求得到满足。 Probably the first telecommunication terminal 200 now back to produce a call origination geographic area (may have to bear the long-distance charges), so that service requests are met.

因此,如果移动用户具有使发给一个移动台目标的呼叫转至被叫移动台的PLMN内一组预定的转移号码中的一个号码的能力就很为有利。 Thus, if the mobile user has the ability to set a number of a predetermined number of transfer so that the target mobile station send a call to a called mobile station in a PLMN it is very advantageous. 这样,在移动台70占线或其他原因不能接收呼叫时,呼叫就根据这转移表转至一个号码。 Thus, when the mobile station 70 is busy or otherwise unable to receive a call, the call goes to a number based on this transfer table. 通过将发给一个移动台的呼入在被叫移动台占线时转至目标PLMN内的另一个电信终端,移动台70不承担长途费用,而呼叫由与目标PLMN(希望采取行动的区域)关联的一个移动台接收。 Will be issued by a mobile station of an incoming call go to another telecommunications terminal within the target PLMN when the called mobile station is busy, the mobile station 70 does not bear the cost of long distance, and the call by the target PLMN (want to take action at the regional) association a mobile station receives.

因此,需要有一种机制,使移动电信网能有选择地将一个呼叫根据移动台的位置转移到一个PLMN内的一个预定的号码表内的号码。 Thus, a need for a mechanism to enable the mobile telecommunications network to selectively transfer a call to a number in a predetermined number within a PLMN table based on the location of the mobile station.

图4为例示与移动台70关联的HLR 40提供基于位置的呼叫转移的情况的方框图。 FIG 4 illustrates an example of the mobile station 70 associated with the HLR 40 based on the block diagram of call transfer position is provided. 每当移动台70接通或进入一个新的位置区时,移动台70就与服务MSC 30执行位置更新过程。 Whenever the mobile station 70 is turned on or enters a new location area, the mobile 70 to perform a location update procedure with the serving MSC 30 units. 服务MSC 30从而向与进行登记的移动台70发送一个位置更新信号(信号170)。 MSC 30 serving the mobile station to thereby register 70 and transmits a location update signal (signal 170). 在所发送的位置更新信号中,服务MSC 30还纳入了表示当前为移动台70服务的业务区的数据。 Transmitted location update signal, the serving MSC 30 also incorporated into the data representing the mobile station 70 currently serving the service area. 在移动网希望提供取决于PLMN或MSC业务区的用户数据的情况下,向HLR 40发送一个表示服务MSC 30的网络地址。 In case the mobile network is desirable to provide PLMN or MSC service area depending on user data is transmitted to the HLR 40 represents a network address of the serving MSC 30. 通过分析例如表示服务MSC 30的网络地址,HLR 40能确定为移动台服务的PLMN或MSC覆盖区的识别标志。 By analyzing the network address, for example, represented by a serving MSC 30, HLR 40 can determine the signature PLMN or MSC coverage area serving the mobile station is. 在移动网希望提供本发明的基于位置的呼叫转移特约功能的情况下,位置更新信号还需要包括表示服务位置区的数据,诸如一个位置区识别标志(LAI)。 In the case where the mobile network is desirable to provide special call forwarding functions based on the position of the present invention, the location update signal further needs to include data representing the service location area, such as a location area identification (LAI).

接收到来自服务MSC 30的位置更新信号,一个与HLR 40配合的应用模块210分析表示当前为移动台服务的业务区的数据,从而从数据寄存器220检索出与这个业务区关联的预定转移号码。 Receiving from the service location update signal MSC 30 of a mating with the HLR 40 application module 210 analyzes the data representing the service area currently serving the mobile station, whereby 220 retrieves a predetermined forwarding number associated with this service area from the data register. 如上所述,在所分析的业务区不是预先存储在数据寄存器220内的业务区之一的情况下,检索出主控业务区来代替。 If one of the service area described above, in the analyzed service area not previously stored in the data register 220, the master service area is retrieved instead.

利用一个信号,诸如基于移动应用部分(MAP)的插入用户数据(Insert-Subscriber-Date)信号,HLR 40将所检索的数据通知服务MSC 30(信号180)。 Using a signal, such as based on a Mobile Application Part (MAP) Insert Subscriber Data of (Insert-Subscriber-Date) signal, HLR 40 notifies the retrieved data service MSC 30 (signal 180). 于是,服务MSC 30将接收到的呼叫转移数据存入所附VLR 50。 Accordingly, the serving MSC 30 stores the received data into the call forwarding appended VLR 50. 此后,所存储的用户数据由服务MSC 30用来为移动台70提供业务服务。 Thereafter, the user data is stored by the serving MSC 30 to provide services to the mobile station 70 services. 作为一个例子,假设有一个或多个表示一个在服务的业务区内的本地终端的预定CFB转移号码由HLR 40检索出来回发给MSC 30和VLR 50。 As an example, assume that one or more predetermined CFB represents the transfer number of the local terminal in a service area is retrieved by the service sent back to MSC 30 HLR 40 and VLR 50. 于是,所有由服务MSC 30接收的呼入在移动台70占线时都由服务MSC 30转至这些预定转移号码之一,从而与所希望的地理位置内的一个移动台或终端完成呼叫。 Thus, all received by the serving MSC 30 incoming call when the mobile station 70 is busy serving MSC 30 by a predetermined transfer go to one of these numbers to a desired location within a mobile station or terminal to complete the call.

在移动台70漫游入一个不同的业务区的情况下,对于这个新的业务区检索出另一组预定的转移号码,提供给新的MSC。 In the case where the mobile station 70 roams into a different service area, for this new service area to retrieve another set of a predetermined number of transfer, it is provided to the new MSC.

下面参照图5说明本发明的基于位置的呼叫转移功能的另一个实施例。 The following embodiments described with reference to another location-based call forwarding feature of the present invention in FIG 5. 具体地说,图5例示了在一个智能网(IN)或高级智能网(AIN)内实现的本发明的一个实施例。 Specifically, FIG. 5 illustrates an embodiment of the present invention implemented within an intelligent network (IN) or Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN).

SSP 265会再将这个信息通知SCP 267,SCP 267会根据移动台255的位置确定适当的转移号码,并将这信息提供给SSP265,使得呼叫能适当地调整路由。 SSP 265 will then notify this information to SCP 267, SCP 267 determines the appropriate location of the mobile station according to the forwarding number 255, and supplies this information to SSP265, so that the call can be routed appropriately adjusted. 在PLMN的情况下,用基于移动应用部分(MAP)的插入用户数据信号在HLR和MSC之间传送信息。 In the case of the PLMN, based on a Mobile Application Part (MAP) Insert Subscriber Data signal transmission of information between the HLR and the MSC. 在PSIN的情况下,用事务处理能力应用部分(TCAP)信号或智能网应用部分(INAP)信号在SSP 265和SCP 267之间传送信息。 In the case of the PSIN using Transaction Capabilities Application Part (the TCAP) signal or Intelligent Network Application Part (the INAP) signaling information between the SSP 265 and the SCP 267.

图6为例示在移动电信网内提供本发明的基于位置的呼叫转移功能所执行的典型步骤的流程图。 FIG 6 provides a flow chart illustrating exemplary steps for call forwarding based on the position of the present invention is performed within a mobile telecommunications network. 如上所述,每当一个移动台进入一个新的位置区时,在步骤400,移动台与服务MSC执行位置更新,发送它的国际移动用户识别(IMSI)号码。 As described above, whenever a mobile station enters a new location area, in step 400, the mobile station and the serving MSC performs a location update, transmits its International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) number. 在步骤410,通过分析接收到的IMSI号码,服务MSC确定与登记的移动台关联的HLR的识别标志。 In step 410, by analyzing the received IMSI number, the serving MSC determines signature associated with the mobile station registered in the HLR. 在步骤420,服务MSC从而与移动台的HLR执行位置更新,通知HLR移动台的新位置,并检索出必要的用户数据。 420, thereby serving MSC performs a location update with the HLR in step a mobile station, the HLR notifies the new location of the mobile station, and retrieve the necessary user data. 服务MSC还发送表示当前为移动台服务的业务区的数据。 Serving MSC also transmits a data service area currently serving the mobile station. 如果业务区包括服务PLMN或MSC,覆盖区,那么表示服务MSC的网络地址就足够了。 If the service area includes the serving PLMN or MSC, coverage area, then indicate the serving MSC network address is sufficient. 如果业务区包括当前为移动台服务的位置区,则需要向HLR发送诸如位置区识别标志或小区识别标志那样的地址。 If the service area includes the location area currently serving the mobile station, the address needs to be sent, such as the location area identification or cell identification to the HLR.

这样,在步骤420,HLR接收来自服务MSC的位置更新信号,确定当前为漫游移动台服务的业务区。 Thus, at step 420, HLR receives the location update signal from the serving MSC and determines the service area currently serving the roaming mobile station. 在步骤430,利用所确定的业务区,HLR检索出与漫游移动台当前所在业务区有关的用户数据,包括基于位置的呼叫转移数据。 At step 430, using the determined service area, the HLR retrieves the subscriber data roaming service area where the mobile station is currently associated, including location-based call forwarding data. 在步骤440,利用基于MAP的插入用户数据信号,HLR向服务MSC发送检索到的用户数据,包括这组呼叫转移数据。 At step 440, using a signal based on the MAP Insert Subscriber data, the HLR transmits the retrieved subscriber data to the serving MSC, including the set of call forwarding data. 包含在所接收的呼叫转移数据内的是一组由移动台先前选择的预定转移号码。 Included in the call forwarding data received is a set of predetermined diversion number previously selected by the mobile station. 接收到来自HLR的基于位置的转移号码,在步骤450,服务MSC将数据存入所附VLR。 Receiving location-based forwarding number from the HLR, at step 450, the serving MSC stores the data in the attached VLR. 此后,在步骤460,利用HLR提供的与业务区有关的用户数据,包括预定转移号码,服务MSC为漫游移动台提供移动业务服务。 Thereafter, in step 460, using the user data area associated with the HLR to provide services, including the transfer of a predetermined number, the serving MSC provides mobile service to the roaming mobile station service.

在另一个实施例中,这种方法在步骤450后而在步骤460前还有两个步骤。 In another embodiment, the method after step 450. In step 460 there are two steps before. 附加的这两个步骤是:确定这些转移号码是否当前在移动台所在的当前业务区内(步骤455),以及不考虑使用那些当前不在为移动台服务的业务区内的转移号码为移动台提供呼叫转移业务服务(步骤457)。 These two additional steps are: determine whether the current forwarding number (step 455), and those numbers do not consider the use of transfer business area is not currently serving the mobile station provides the mobile station to mobile station where the current service area call forwarding business services (step 457).

在又一个实施例中,步骤457可根据当前位置以外的其他因素来排除某些转移号码。 In yet another embodiment, step 457 may be to exclude certain forwarding number according to factors other than current location. 例如,可以应用一个基于时间的系统,使得只在一定时间(如周末、上午9点至下午5点)使用转移号码。 For example, the system can be applied to a time-based, so that the transfer only a certain number of time (e.g., weekends, 9:00 to 17:00). 转移号码可先经受任意多的准则的检验后再在步骤460中用来为移动台提供呼叫转移功能。 Inspection may first be subjected to a forwarding number after any number of criteria in step 460 is used to provide call forwarding to the mobile station.

最后,在另一个实施例中,对步骤430至460稍加修改,使得包括预定转移号码数据寄存器的应用模块与一个相当于HLR的SCP配合。 Finally, in another embodiment, step 430-460 slightly modified, so that the application module including the data register of the predetermined number of transfer corresponds with a SCP with the HLR. 服务MSC与IN或AIN内的SSP接触,从而在SCP的配合下,SSP按照预定的转移号码为呼叫改选路由。 IN serving MSC or SSP in contact with the inner AIN, so that in cooperation with the SCP, SSP according to a predetermined election routing the call forwarding number.

虽然以上结合附图对本发明的方法和设备的优选实施例作了详细说明,但可以理解,本发明并不局限于这里所揭示的实施例,在不偏离如以下权利要求所提出和明确的本发明的精神的情况下可以加以种种重排、修改和替代。 Although described above in connection detail preferred embodiments of the method and apparatus of the present invention are shown, it is understood that the invention is not limited to the embodiments disclosed herein, without departing from the clear and forth as the following claims of the present It can be various rearrangements, modifications and substitutions of the spirit of the present invention.
